The Secret of True Love Paul Newman & Joanne Woodward

They met in 1953, were cast together in “The Long Hot Summer” in 1957, married in 1958, and remained blissfully happy together for 50 years, celebrating their golden anniversary just months before Paul’s death in 2008.

Paul Newman’s letter to his wife on his wedding day:

 “ Happiness in marriage is not something that just happens. A good marriage must be created. In the Art of Marriage, the little things are the big things. It is never being too old to hold hands. It is remembering to say ‘I love you’ at least once a day. It is never going to sleep angry. It is at no time taking the other for granted; the courtship should not end with the honeymoon; it should continue through all the years. It is having a mutual sense of values and common objectives. It is standing together facing the world. It is forming a circle of love that gathers in the whole family. It is doing things for each other, not in the attitude of duty or sacrifice, but in the spirit of joy. It is speaking words of appreciation and demonstrating gratitude in thoughtful ways. It is not expecting the husband to wear a halo or the wife to have the wings of an angel. It is not looking for perfection in each other. It is cultivating flexibility, patience, understanding and a sense of humor. It is having the capacity to forgive and forget. It is giving each other an atmosphere in which each can grow. It is finding rooms for things of the spirit. It is a common search for the good and the beautiful. It is establishing a relationship in which the independence is equal, dependence is mutual and obligation is reciprocal. It is not only marrying the right partner, it is being the right partner.”

New inspiration! Googie architecture design! This is my first time reading and hearing about this type of design.

Googie is a architecture design inspired by The Jetsons, flying saucers,rockets,space age, atomic models, boomerang shapes and starbursts.

This art style thrived from the 1950s to the early 1960s..

Vintage frocks and suits look best when an appropriate foundation is under them. Bullet bras are especially important but I also love the look of a cincher under certain things. Modern- that you find in the store shape-wear sucks. It’s tube shaped and gives a sausage effect. It’s also not for smaller people. Rago makes an inexpensive cincher in xs (24 waist) that’s pretty nice. I take them in an inch and they work well. You can usually find bullet bras on eBay or etsy or opt for a What Katie Did bra (never tried one but every review I have seen has been good). For an inexpensive option exquisite form original full support bra has a subtle bullet shape. Amazon has them starting at 5.99. I have one and I like it but far prefer my vintage overwire style.

and here’s what’s under:

The bra was $14 on eBay, slip was $1 at an estate sale and the cincher $26 from Rago.

It’s a nice clean line with no weirdo lumps and under $40. It acts like a merry widow if you can’t find one or like the pieces separate. 

Let me know if you try it and like it!
